These cauliflower crust pizzas are trending, so I took on the challenge to cook something healthy with kids (but still "Pizza!"). Of course, I was curious to see if they would like it. We had a traditional dough as backup, just in case. With a bit of help from my brother and sister-in-law still needed, it was a success all around. The adults liked it, too.
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 1 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella
- 6 tbsp. grated parmesan
- 2 eggs
- Salt, Pepper, Oregano, and Garlic Powder to taste
- Pre-made Pizza Sauce
- More cheese for the boys
- Anything else for adults (I used bell pepper, kalamata olive, sauteed spinach, basil, fresh mozzarella)
Knowing I couldn't take long to prep with Max and Sam, I readied the ingredients at home. You can easily grate the cauliflower, sautee the spinach, and cut the veggies well in advance and refrigerate it until dinner time. I did add a little lemon juice to the cauliflower to help it keep in the fridge.
To make the crust, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Mix the grated cauliflower, cheeses, whisked egg, and seasoning. Flatten on a greased baking sheet in a thin layer. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crispy.
Top your pizza with sauce and anything else you'd like. Return to the oven until cheese is melted and it has reached the crispiness you prefer. Silly faces while you wait will pass the time.
